College Readiness Assessment
Students in grade 8 take the ReadiStep in October. Readistep is the first step on the College Board's College Readiness Pathway - an integrated series of assessments that includes the PSAT and the SAT. Together, these assessments measure a progression of skillls and help schools and districts make targeted interventions at critical points in a student's career.

Students in grade 10 and 11 take the PSAT in October. The PSAT is a predictor of a student's

for a higher score in the SAT. 

PSAT is available to homeschooled students and will be administered on October 15, 2014. For more information, contact the Assessment Assistant Principal at the campus closest to you to register by September 26, 2014.
